A Songwriter Of Many Voices

(Sandy) Alex G is a Philadelphia-based songwriter with a knack for transforming his voice. Sometimes he does it to inhabit a character, while other times he does it out of enjoyment. At just 26 years old, (Sandy) Alex G has released nine albums to date and has collaborated with the likes of Frank Ocean. He speaks with The Frame’s Jonathan Shifflett about “House of Sugar,” his most recent release, and how he used his voice to blend humor and seriousness.
